I met Candy Ramirez, Queen Bee Baker, about a year-and-a-half ago through my friend, Nely Galan. Nely has this way of bringing like-minded people together. And this pairing changed my life! Candy is the baker’s version of what I do – and ten fold! (Love that pun!) She has blended a career in the baking arts, first as a custom cake designer for clients far and wide, and now she has evolved her brand to teach, mentor, and share confectionary ideas for people to create at home.
Seriously, if you are running your own business – full time or as a side hustle, you need to follow all her feeds. She does daily vlogs where she shares ideas, thoughts, and tips on life, family, the biz – and baking of course!
Check out my podcast interview with her, and then I’ll put together another post with her epic cake ideas. They will blow your mind! and check out my Facebook page on Friday, we’ll be doing a Facebook Live where she is going to teach me how to flip a cake!
The Crafty Chica Show podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify and a lot of other outlets, please subscribe, comment and share! And let me know what topics you would like me to cover!
